Q&A Samir Jain

In this interview with Samir Jain, the Mumbai-based senior director of LCR Capital Partners, Jain discusses the benefits of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa.

The visa requires making an investment of $900,000 or $1,800,000 in a USCIS-approved project that will provide jobs for at least 10 US workers, and then, 18 to 20 months after the investment, the investor and his or her family will receive green cards allowing for permanent residency in the US.

Jain focuses on the educational benefits of the EB-5 visa, including domestic college and university tuition rates vastly lower than international rates, access to merit-based scholarships targeted at US students, and a four-times-higher likelihood of college acceptance (since EB-5 students are not considered international students). Furthermore, students with EB-5 visas are more likely to qualify for internships and full-time jobs than international students without the EB-5.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in February 2022, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
